Te Araroa. Since the seed of the idea was planted I’ve been excited, if a little intimidated. But I’ve figured I’ll get it done. But as summer looks ever closer. And my time to prepare shrinks. I’m filled with fear. About the things that can go wrong. About the things I will miss out on while I travel. Christmas with my family. Summer with my friends.
I’m a big fan of making plans. But I’m not always great at following them. My theory has always been the scout motto from my childhood. Be prepared. But I’m not prepared, there’s still so much left to do. And now I’m feeling the fear.
Logistics, transport, fitness, equipment, resupply, navigation, finances all way heavy on my mind. And I’m struggling to find the motivation to complete the task in front of me.
But I will.
